melkdave - To look at it another way, France were only playing at 40% and still managed to make it to the final.
A new coach with the respect of the players and knowledge of winning coaching.They have depth and talent in spades and are the team to beat.

5/1 for Ireland, whatever your allegiances, that's worth a flutter!

It will be a tight tourament this year DK is right on that lol .Lot of unknowns this year really France are favorites because they got to the RWC final but they where atrostious for every game except the final really and the luckiest finalists every imo .Wales are bubbling but didnt win any games of note at the RWC and bottled it really .Ireland misfired all year and only played as you expect them to in 2 games in 2011 .Kidney needs to address that big time .Scotland and Itlay played with guts as always but both need consistancy in wining games .Both are capable of beating anyone but need to back it up .As to England well its a brand new ball game for them new squad and coach and most probaly a new playing style question is can they settle and excute if so they can be danerous against anyone .So a tight 6N ahead imo and i dont atm see a slam being done

I agree with him. I think with all the new talent coming through, Its impossible to predict what the table will look like at the end of the tournament.
